In anticipation of the next Black Swan, I got in on the fringe of an exchange between author Matt Bracken and a bunch of ‘in-the-know’ brainiacs over the weekend which gave me more food for thought than I normally would admit to. The surprising thing was that the commentary conversations were originally attached to the 11-minute video of Stephen Miller and the (attempted) grilling by Chris Wallace on ‘Fox News Sunday’.
As a point of observation, to say that Miller eviscerated Wallace would be like pretending Wallace is a true conservative and should have done much better!
But I digress. One of the participants was a father whose ‘son, who was up for his first star in the Army, a full-colonel, suddenly resigned his commission and left the Army. He won’t tell me why, and said that the less I know, the better off I am. But his anticipation hints that ‘something is in the wind’ … I have absolutely no idea what ‘it’ is, but if my son – who was a patriot and a Constitutional conservative from day One – has resigned from the Army, then it’s not something we conservatives would like. When I talked to him, Friday night, the last thing he said to me was, “God bless America, and God bless President Trump.”
Matt Bracken’s response was: ‘I have no idea about that. It’s possible he reached his personal limit with Soviet-style PC mandates, for example, you must stand in front of the troops and tout LGBTQ diversity uber alles propaganda, including that all the troops must now address Captain Smith as Ma’am instead of Sir. Etc.’
Not to stray too far off topic but ‘Chamber of Commerce and trillions at stake’ is what triggered my thinking about the anticipation of the next black swan. I understand the notion of trillions at stake when it comes to global corporatism, etc., yet I wasn’t thinking that illicit border activity was that big a part of the equation. Apparently I (most of us, I suppose) have been naive as to the amount of money involved in the various forms of trafficking, and how corruptible so many members of Congress can be.
Take, for instance, this opener from Brian C. Joondeph in today’s American Thinker: ‘Crime and Punishment for the Deep State’…
Crime and Punishment, by Fyodor Dostoevsky, published in 1866, explored the theme of morally justifying crime for its greater good and benefit to society. Fast forward 150 years from Russia to the American political deep state, where similar righteous themes are playing out.
Former Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe, in May 2017, was in the middle of a Deep State coup to try to remove President Donald Trump from office using the 25th Amendment. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein was also part of the plan, allegedly offering to “wear a wire” to record the lunatic rantings of President Trump to use as justification to nullify the results of the recent presidential election. The latest is that two more Trump cabinet members may (or may not) have signed on to the coup.
Someone from the New York Times might call this patriotism, acting out of a higher moral calling to stop someone unfit and unsuited to be president, an outsider not from the establishment club. As Trump once said of himself during the campaign, he was an “existential threat” to the deep state establishment. “Our movement is about replacing a failed and corrupt establishment with a new government controlled by you the American people.” A clear and present threat to the Deep State.
Others will call McCabe’s actions a coup, a treasonous attempt to subvert an election. Then having failed, ramped-up effort to remove a duly elected president from office, either by impeachment or by considering invoking the 25th Amendment.
Former FBI Director James Comey, an integral part of this coup attempt, wrote a book entitled Higher Calling: Truth, Lies, and Leadership, a title justifying his transgressions for the so-called greater good to society. His greater good was suppressing justice when it suited him and his establishment peers by ignoring or suppressing the legitimate investigation into Hillary Clinton’s illegal handling of classified email. This evolved into subverting justice by initiating a FISA warrant and spying — first on a presidential candidate, then president — based on unverified political opposition research presented to a FISA court as verified intelligence.

To cut to the chase, these seemingly forever-continuing waves and waves of invaders attacking the southern border are not by accident – they are all part of the (Soros etal?) plan to overwhelm and disrupt America, and President Trump can’t do it on his own. Americans better wake up before it is too late to stop the destruction of our Constitutional Republic.
What if, however, the ingrates and occupants of our legal system are unwilling to seek and mete out justice? The question then becomes how far should We the American people go to ensure that said justice is meted out? Who ultimately determines how, where and when the sword of Damocles in the hand of Lady Justice is let loose?
To repeat what I ended with in yesterday’s post – over to you in anticipation, AG Barr. Time’s definitely a’wasting…
Talking about anticipation, today’s MAGA Pill – Warrior-president Donald J Trump – MAGA!
